Just wondering if anyone has any first hand experience in keeping these? Thinking about a small breeding group

In the absence of any replies personally I have found them to be very aggressive (and territorial) and wonder if keeping them in a group would be a wise choice, maybe in a larger tank with plenty of caves and the like might be the preferred 'group' option.
They will eat prepared foods but seem to much prefer live (or frozen) grub.

I kept them in soft acid water and - while they did breed - I never witnessed the event, just found a couple of fry (presumably the ones which 'escaped' the attention of the adults.
Also, I only ever kept them one pair to a tank.

I'm actually on the lookout for new stock myself so if you locate any for sale in Ireland please let me know.

That's about the limit of my experiences with them. Sorry it's not a more definitive account.

Cheers John, appreciate all the input I can get at this point.

Newlands had them a few weeks back, but I'd no space. Gavin is ordering more for me too.

Do you want me to let you know if he gets some?
